Sakizome-momen fabric is a dyed yarn cotton fabric. This is a traditional style fabric suitable for hand or machine stitching. It is classic for sashiko and boro stitching, but equally suitable for sewing clothing, soft home decor projects, and country quilts.
Aside from the quality standards which the Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., Ltd. of Nagoya, Japan, maintain in manufacturing their fabrics, they have cared to make it their goal to revive the traditional Japanese vintage textiles while using modern textile technologies, and they have done it very well. The textures, colours and designs retain the feeling and appearance of kofu momen (traditional cotton) fabrics. Olympus fabrics will not bleed their colours during stitching or washing. Machine washable. Pre shrunk.
